Storyline

This production, which comprises two reels, was made in the old Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, where the incidents of the story were supposed to have occurred. The costume plates, shields, weapons and accessories were kindly loaned by the Museum of Indian Antiques at Albuquerque, N.M. The opening scene occurs on a feast-day in early times before the coming of the Spanish to that country. During the spring dance of the green boughs, the sun priest tells the story of the turquoise stone that fell from the sky centuries before and was embedded in the earth, the recovery of which would mean light, and prosperity to the people of Isleta. The great brother, the exemplar of the tribe, is chosen as the one most worthy to be sent on the holy mission. The dangers and hardships which he endures during his long quest go to make a most beautiful portrayal of early Indian symbolism. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
